Hi KB,

the one on the right is a bit of an optical illusion - the Tardis looks like it's materialised in a 5ft snow drift! Cool! Good to see the old girl again :-)

cheers

KB,  ol' father!  Nice to see your Met Police Box on this forum.  I agree with Demat, the right side of the photo looks like an optical illusion.  I am so pleased to see a lot of familar names... Right then, talk to you soon my friend... Jon~

Hi all

Hey! That's fantastic! Is it based on a Hartnell box?

Hi Graham
Thanks for the kind words. My box is actually based on original police box spec. The Hartnell (or Brakachi) box is in my humble opinion the nearest tardis to that, so yeah it's kind of Hartnellish, if you like.
Many thanks

Nice box! I always did like the older box. Makes me feel nostalgic...

Hi Dori
Glad you like my attempt at a met box. One question, How can one so young feel nostalgic towards something they can't possibly remember? And they say chivalry is dead.
Many thanks
KB
PS How goes the project?

Easy makes me think of the older series of Doctor Who I used to watch on YTV alon gwith the movies, then it reminds me of all the things I was doing in life at that time. Hallowe'en mainly. Besides I can remember being in my crib and having my mum cat Darth watching over my crib.

Thanks for saying I am young....I am 25 and been feeling kinda out of it cause of my little sister an dher friends. Its just what I needed to hear.  ;D

25 is very very young,  But to be honest, I didn't feel like I hit my stride until 30, I am 35 now and happier and more content then I have ever been.  I haven't even had my 1st regeneration yet.  ;)
